I get 'No performance data is available for the currently selected metrics' when selecting a Host / Performance Overview and change the view to Virtual Machine.
The data was there in 7.0c, but is missing after upgrading to 7.0.1.
I have checked the statistic level - which is set to 3, and changed it to 4 to see if it makes a difference.
Is anyone able to confirm they see the same thing or know why this data is now now being graphed ?
Its only VM view performance data which is missing, all the other (Overview, NIC's and Disks) views are ok.
I have upgraded to 7.0.1U1c and the problem still exists.
Its the same on 3 VCSA's.
Mine are all in sync too.
It's only when looking at the "Virtual Machines" view. The "Overview", "Network Adapters" and "Disks" views are fine.
Also, whether I select real-time or any other timeframe as the period, I get the same error.
I am running build 17491160 now and the problem seems not to be gone here.
Metrics per virtual machine are still not available.
I have a case open at vmware an they pointed at that kb 😕
Which in my case is not the problem.
@netzwerkleute On mine not.
Still not resolved.
VMware closed it meanwhile and marked the mentioned KB as solution.
I reopened the case because that mentioned KB is not the solution in my case.
My case number: active SR 21212322404
VMware replied after some weeks of investigating to me.
I will post the reply here:
Just wanted to update you on the case. After a lot of work with scaling at engineering level, we found a fix for the reported inconvenience. The fix will be available in version 7.0 Patch 04, which will be available at the end of 2021. This patch will come with all the recommendations and help you have indicated for us."
So it seems they were able to track the issue down and will provide a fix for it soon.
Does anyone know if this is still a pending issue and if we are still waiting for this patch 4? I have just updated to 7.0. Update 3 and still have this issue. Performance metrics appear nominal when viewed directly through the hosts, yet I still cannot see anything in vCenter. I went through the mentioned KB as well and it did not resolve it.
Thanks! I have another update on this as well.
It appears that this issue was created when hosts were updated to 7.0.3 before vCenter was. Hosts that were running the newer version were not displaying performance stats correctly in vCenter 7.0 U2d. Now that vCenter has been upgraded, all performance metrics are showing as normal.

For kb79596 I'm getting a syntax error with the psql code:
update vpx_host_perfinfo set last_perf_time =now() where id=’HOST-ID
This is the replacement step 11 at the bottom of the article for 7.0. It yields this:
ERROR: column "id" does not exist
LINE 1: ...vpx_host_perfinfo set last_perf_time =now() where id='HOST-I...
Has anyone been able to run this against 7.0?
I'm willing to wipe all stats data if that would help -- just need a procedure.
